    Oktava MK-012 testing

    Slightly, but unbearably!!
  4. Hi Dave (& Danny), After a recent trip away with the Mix Pre 10T and encountering problems and I've done my own set of testing over the past 3 or 4 days and this is what I have found out so. Same as Dave, after an extended period of being off say more that 4 or 5 hours it goes through the firmware update routine and the timecode generator reset message appears every time after that, that the unit is restarted. I've found that if you go into the time code menu, select time of day, go out of that menu, then go back into it again and select another timecode option (for me I am using the timecode in via the AUX in connection) it will then power on and off within a period of say 4 or 5 hours without that message, after that, the timecode reset message will reappear. My operator on the recent job also noted that the unit was powering itself off and then rebooting. This was happening with two charged L-Series batteries. The problem seem to disappear if we changed over to the V-Lock battery and then powered via the HiRose connector. I am wondering now if the rebooting issue was the firmware update issue.

    Oktava MK-012 testing

    The kit I got actually came with one of these! increases the self-noise slightly though.

    Oktava MK-012 testing

    Oktava makes a low-cut filter that can screw in between capsule and head amp--(like Schoeps Cut1), very helpful (but makes the mic longer).

    3d printed XLR caps, RX mount, and mic cases

    I've uploaded two new variants to Thingiverse; same basic cap, but the cable exits the top of the XLR instead of the bottom. More options for better cable management…

    Proper Lav Mic Techniques

    Seeing as how most of you have only been doing this for twenty years or so, I thought I'd share one of my helpful tutorials. You're welcome!

    Oktava MK-012 testing

    As has been stated 'All Oktava 012s are not created equal due to the factory's quality control (or lack there of). Aside for the handing and wind noise, the 10mV sensitivity is a little lower than I prefer for dialog, which can also be an issue with low-cost noisy preamps. The 'Dorcey' type mods can alleviate the handing/wind noise somewhat but the sensitivity stays the same. I have a pair of Sound Room 012s that sound nice, but I use them mostly for music projects, drum overheads, acoustic guitar, ect.

    NYTimes sound backgrounds from around world

    Amazing! Great example of how sound can take us very far away and immerse us (especially if no moving pictures are involved...) Thanks for the share Jay!

    Found some Remove wipes at a local medical supply store. (Lancaster on West Broadway if you're in Vancouver, BC) Rather expensive at $25 for 50, but I cleaned 6 lavs and mounts with 2 wipes, so that's probably good for years... They worked really well! Thanks to those who found and recommended them. It's good to do a final wipe with alcohol since the wipes have aloe vera in them which leaves the wires and mounts a bit "moisturized" And if you're really cheap, automotive starting fluid is $5 for a can that will last forever, as well as get your horrible old lawnmower running in the spring. Cheers, Brent Calkin
  18. Tomorrow's Times has a 32 minute selection of fascinating sfx bgs from around the world (like, rats singing harmonies on NYC streets). It talks over -- a lot -- but there are also some very well recorded stereo tracks where the reporter and experts shut up. If you click "I don't have print version", the piece is broken down to shorter clips with images. If you click "I have print" you get the same sounds and dialog, but as a long file with location slider.

    Oktava MK-012 testing

    You may always buy a better quality mic second hand, the build quality of audio technica, neumann, gefell... is good enough for years of hard use in the field. I have some 20years old mics like neumann rsm and a km 140 that i use regulary without problems

    Who do you use for personal Equipment insurance?

    I'm also a happy Athos customer. I have yet to make a claim (hopefully never will *knocks on wood*), but I do know a mixer who made a claim for stolen gear and got taken cared of, no problems.

    URSA mini mount

    It's very smooth plastic. I had good results with them recently under synthetic material which was causing some issues with the rubbery Sanken rm11 mounts. Another useful option to have in the kit for sure.

    URSA mini mount

    I have Mini Mounts with DPA 4071. Way better from rounded concealer from DPA which you can easily lost parts of it. Also, check the video below from Matt Price during IBC about Mini Mount / Sanken COS 11 and dealing with wind. Starts at 3:40

    URSA mini mount

    I only compared it with the DPA Concealer, so no clue about the RM-11. Ursa has round edges, less mass and isolates slightly better overall, but it's not a magic noise killer. Here is a quick comparison with a regular t-shirt: Dpa_Concealer.wav Mini_Ursa.wav

    URSA mini mount

    Is it very smooth? Does it make any noise with fabric rubbing against it? I tried the hide-a-mics and found that with certain fabrics there was an awful hollow plastic scratching sound. The metal wire concept that the DPA concealer uses seems to work more often than not.

    URSA mini mount

    I picked one up and have been happy with it. Creating that space around the mic can be acheived with a more modest means of snot tape and moleskin (or whatever floats your boat), but I always like to have a variety of bits kicking around the wiring kit. I'd recommend it.
